My specialisms

I have a number of years experience working with women and girls, both around experiences of gender based violence and addiction (see articles here and here), but also with broader themes that affect us all.

Below, I list some of the areas that I have an interest in and experience of working with:

(Click on the links to go through to relevant articles that I have written.)

  • Abuse; including emotional, psychological, physical, sexual, religious and financial abuse
  • Addictive processes; from alcohol and substance misuse, to workaholism
  • Anxiety, panic and stress
  • Depression, low mood and persistent sadness, including suicidality and self-harm
  • Self-esteem issues
  • Grief, loss and bereavement, including traumatic loss
  • Existential concerns. The big questions of life; death, meaning / purpose, aloneness
  • The pre and post natal experience & mothering
  • Gender and sexuality
  • Relational patterns and attachment styles: the patterns that we bring to our adult lives that have their roots in our past
  • Trauma, PTSD and post-traumatic growth

You don’t have to be struggling to come to therapy, so I also work with:

  • Personal growth and fulfillment
  • Love / romance / dating / relationships
  • Spirituality

And finally

If you have something to talk about that is not on the list, then please don’t let this put you off getting in touch. A number of studies – and my personal experience – suggest that finding the right person to support you is by far the biggest factor in making changes through therapy.

As ever, take care of yourself and I hope you find a resolution to whatever brings you searching.
